Ed's Setups

While I must be honest and say that my setups do change from time to time, as of this moment in time I am playing the following horns (primary and secondary) and mouthpieces:

Clarinet

1950 Conn 424N with a totally refaced Conn Steelay mouthpiece with a facing length of 34 and a tip of 1.02mm

Soprano Sax

Antigua Winds A590-SPC with a Selmer S-80D refaced to spec

Alto Sax

1960 Selmer Mark VI with original Selmer Soloist C** or Chicago Mouthpieces "Big Band" Prototype

1952 Buescher Aristocrat with Chicago Mouthpieces "Big Band" Prototype (jazz) or Buescher Tru-lay (classical)

Tenor Sax

1969 Selmer Mark VI with a tweaked Woodwind Company Model 36/B5 (classical and big band) or Chicago Mouthpieces Prototype HR

1948 Buescher 400 TH&C with a tweaked Woodwind Company Model 36/B5 (classical and big band) or Chicago Mouthpieces Prototype HR

Bari Sax

1960's King Tempo (Keilwerth New King stencil) with a refaced George Bundy HR opened to .095" or a refaced, modified chamber, and modified baffle Conn Steelay

Like most players I have a large number of mouthpieces including many of the classic pieces such as Brilharts, Otto Links (Florida), Meyer, and Selmer in addition to some modern classics from makers such as Ralph Morgan.

I mostly use Fibracell reeds for practice and performance. 

For mouthpiece testing I use a variety of reeds including Alexanders, Rico, Rico Royals, Hemke, Vandoren(blue box), Vandoren ZZ's, and Vandoren V12 (for clarinet).

I use and recommend Rovner Ligatures.
